Torque Sensors help calibrate and test small torque tools.
June 19, 2012 -
Used in conjunction with torque tester, Series LPX covers torque range from 1-20 lb-in. Low profile design enables sensors to be used for automated applications by mounting to palletized system. By ensuring torque equipment is operating to peak performance, Series LPX can highlight potential tooling problems before they arise due to tool wear or broken components. Units are suitable for calibrating and testing small hand screwdrivers, torque wrenches, and power tools.

The New LPX Torque Sensor by Mountz Inc.
Calibrating and Testing Small Hand & Power Torque Tools
San Jose, Calif. - Mountz, Inc., a specialist in the design and manufacture of torque control products, offers the new LPX torque sensor for testing small torque tools. The LPX is a low torque sensor designed for calibrating and testing small hand screwdrivers, torque wrenches and power tools. With its low profile design, the calibration instrument can be used for automated applications, by mounting it to a palletized system. This saves time as there is no need to remove the robotic electric screwdriver from the robot or off the automated system for calibration. These versatile torque sensors are used in conjunction with a torque tester. Mountz offers various models covering a torque range from 1 inch-ounce up to 20 inch-pounds.
Small torque tools go out of calibration with use. To maintain consistent accuracy, small torque tools must be checked periodically for wear or defective parts. A small power or hand torque tool is a measuring tool that must be properly calibrated and maintained. Torque testing also ensures torque equipment is operating to peak performance and can highlight potential tooling problems before they arise perhaps due to tool wear or broken components. Only Mountz LPX torque sensors provide precision torque testing for these applications.
In the manufacturing and assembly world, tightening, controlling, or measuring torque fasteners is imperative for production efficiency. An inadequately torqued fastener can vibrate or work loose; conversely, if the tension is too high, the fastener can snap or strip its threads. Faced with these problems, manufacturers are realizing that precise torque control can spell the difference between a safe, reliable, and economical product and complete disaster.
Using a quality torque sensor, like the LPX, and a torque tester has become increasingly important for many companies to ensure that proper torque control is being applied and monitored. Testing torque is a science and not something that can be left to chance.
